Michigan Misdemeanor and Felony Offenses
Misdemeanor offenses in Michigan are considered the less serious crimes and often come with lighter penalties than felony offenses, but that does not mean that you should take a misdemeanor charge lightly. These offenses still come with potential jail time, serious fines, and a permanent criminal record that can affect jobs, school applications, your living situation, and more. Some of the most common misdemeanor offenses we defend against in the Grandville area include the following:
- Domestic violence
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Indecent exposure
- Malicious destruction of property
- Misdemeanor larceny
- Operating while visibly impaired (OWI)
- Possession of marijuana
Felony offenses are the more serious crimes that can come with significant prison terms, hefty fines, and permanently affect the rest of your life both personally and professionally. A felony conviction limits your right to vote, possess firearms, hold professional licenses, and more. You should always take an accusation of a felony crime seriously and call a criminal defense attorney right away. Some of the Michigan felony charges our office defends against include:
- Aggravated assault
- Identity theft
- Insider trading
- Insurance fraud
- Money laundering
- Mortgage fraud
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession with the intent to distribute
